From apps and websites to connected products and wearable technologies, Interaction Design at NCAD is about designing to support the way people communicate and interact in their daily lives. It is about imagining things as they might be, not necessarily as they are.
The BA Interaction Design programme explores the relationship between people and technology at home, work or play. Learning is built around a core belief in human-centered design with students developing the research and innovation skills that will allow them to design meaningful and desirable digital products. Through first hand research, students uncover needs which will be solved by creating engaging experiences for now or in the future.
Students tackle a wide range of projects ranging from design for screen-based interactions for web and apps, to service design, to interactive products, and installations. Through these projects, students develop core skills in user experience design, user interface design, visual communication, web design, service design, physical computing and augmented reality.
